Looking for some ideas for 2 16l stone pots

AHRAHR Sheffield Posts: 361

I have two 25cm x 25cm x 25cm stone pots that I will be having on my patio either side of my conservatory doors. Just not sure what to plant in the and looking for some ideas. 

I would like something that has full seasons interest and can stay in the pots for years to come. Preferably evergreen and long flowering

this is south facing and will be against the conservatory

other plants I have on the patio include bird of paradise, bougainvillea, theatre of herbs and 3 oleanders. 

Thanks for your help- looking forwards to the replies

    Sounds like you have an exotic theme going on. If your garden is in some kind of micro-climate, I recommend an Australian Bluebell Creeeper. Sollya Heterophylla is a lovely climber but will scramble about if you lean it against something. You can shape it to keep it in order, and it will act like a scrambling shrub.

    In the summer time, masses of small pale bluebell-like flowers compliment the dark glossy foliage. Then in the autumn time, there are long shaped berries of deep purple. Very decorative and striking. Definitely interest throughout the summer and autumn. 

    Likes sun and as long as the winter temperatures don't dip below -5c, it should do fine.
